on that and there are no other reports. >> commissioners, under item 814601 larkin street, informational, current status of the project design. >> good afternoon president fong and members of commission. i am going to keep my comments very brief here. the subject property was considered in june of 2010 and june of this year for proposal to demolish the church. this commission cited concerns no. 1 about the demolition of the existing church which is considered an historic resource under ceqa, but also to do with what i would collective call the compatibility. the project sponsor has been working collaboratively with planning department staff and with representatives of the community in an attempt to address staff concerns, community members concerns and issues raised by this commission at previous hearings. so i will turn it over to the project sponsor to address the specific ways in which the project has evolved and is continuing to evolve. thank you very much. i am available for questions. good afternoon commissioners and president, my name is ian birchel and represent the project sponsor and i would
to 1630 clay. four story against four story the same is true of the larkin. it was at one time a gap that was opening onto larkin between the historic building and our new building so this design is now significantly different one than shown to the commission and we have included a community room, which we'll discuss. it's still ongoing discussions about how the community room will be used and under what kind of conditions and terms. the community considerations on the right we're including three community parking spaces, which could be either rented or purchased. we have one car shed designated for public use and one car shed dedicated to use by the residents. the street greening, we have a proposal that is not a contract yet, but we have a proposal from the project sponsor to provide up to 100 street trees on both sides and the 1600 block of clay. this is a program that would be contracted with friends of the urban forest and it would be managed with some financial assistance from the project sponsor by polk neighborhood association working with the community and property owners a
. >> the city i believe was up larkin street, and everything west was counties. i think larkin was here. that is the original charter. then in 1850, van ness, who was the supervisor, did the addition. it was called the western addition, even though it was in the middle of the city, because it was west of larkin. >> i did not understand that when i was a child. it always seemed that it was east of where everything i knew was. >> all this down here was county of san francisco, so there was a point in time where you could be in the county of san francisco, but not in the city you live in these outside lands. >> lead problem is if you look at the orientation, no. is up. we are going to turn it the way we are normally accustomed to seeing it. here is where the golden gate bridge is. here is where the bay bridge is. the county went all the way down here, and about a year later, they moved the county to write about here, so this was county land or outside land, and this was the city. this was 1861, so the city has grown by this much. these were added, and they are basically pasture lands. that
which initiated the then fact finding process to determine whether or not 1601 larkin should be designated a local landmark. that went to the then-advisory historic preservation commission. and to this body, that made a recommendation to the board of supervisors that it be designated a local landmark but the board never took that action. and we were involved in the litigation back in -- through 2007 through 2009. so what the project sponsor and the property owner argued and there's no use appealing the supervisors because the board of supervisors wanted to designate it as a local landmark. so why should we go to the board of supervisors to ask permission to tear it down and build condos when they have already indicated that they wanted to be designated a local landmark. and what we argued in the trial court and in the court of appeal that, as a matter of law, that that is insufficient. another argument which they made, at the end of the trial court proceedings, and in the court of appeal, was that it would have been futile to appeal the denial of the cu to the board of superv
with a separate street access from larkin street. and this will be written into the cc os in the building to be available for community use for five years. at the end of five years, ongoing use will be determined by what the preceding uses have shown. next, please. these are just highlights of the basic data. 27 units in the building. the reduction in size has changed the unit mix and size of some of the units and there are now more one-bedrooms than before and we have 32 parking spaces, 27 for 27 units, 3 for community assigned and two for car-share. excuse me. next, please. this is a little bit burnt out, i apologize, but you have it in your package. the rendering in the middle is the design rejected at the conditional use application in june. to the left is our first attempt at the demasing of the building and running along the bottom there are sequential demasing proposals that were discussed with members of the community, polk neighbors to try to achieve a compromise that would work for all. in the end, we did something a little different from the right-hand slide. that is the design

mentioned that are planned to be planted along both larkin and clay street with maintenance included. and the fact that the project sponsor has worked with the neighbors to try to decrease the size. one of the things that we called for and i would encourage him to continue to work with neighbors with particular reference to the adjacent building on clay and the property line windows. although we know these are not protected, if there is a way that they can be worked out to allow light into as many as these as possible, that would be great. although a lot has been done already. and then on some other issues regarding the redesign -- not the redesign, but the new project more properly state. one of the things mentioned in the complaints by the neighborhood and others is that typical finishs in the neighborhood are wood, brick and stucco and some of the earlier renderings had a lot of glass, concrete and metal base. i do really like the way this is redesigned. although i do architecturally like the richer-looking base and other elements that were present in the project that was reje
apology. this is, or was marge larkin. - where's her face? - coyotes, probably. she's been five days, maybe six in the sun. - she was a hiker? - marge was a lot of things. she, uh, she came into a little bit of money a few years ago when her parents died, and so she just dabbled in all kinds of things. yoga, spelunking, trout farming. - and apparently hiking. - where's her face? - we already talked about the face, okay? where did they find her? - a couple of those ufo aficionados found her in the foothills about five miles west. just lucky break. they were all out there looking for e.t. she could've been out there forever. - i figure she was hiking along the ridge, fell somehow, hit her head, and died instantly. and then the coyotes must've dragged the body about a mile, maybe two, into the desert. - dr. garcia's written "accidental death" on the certificate, but i asked him to write it in pencil because i wanted to get a second opinion. - why? - it's a very small town, mr. monk. and marge larkin was as close as we have to an important person. so, like i said, i wanted to get this ri

on larkin street, running in the middle of traffic. not knowing what they had, the officers a housimmediately gaind chase on foot. officers minkel and everson are gaining on a suspect when suddenly he turned and fired multiple shots from a handgun he had hidden in his possession. the officers debated around by movement in her incubating on this subject. at great risk to their own lives, these officers continue their pursuit of the now known violent subject and prepared to return fire. officer everson exercise a considerable amount of restraint as there were numerous pedestrians. he did not in gauge the suspect. officer minkel had a clear range of fire and engaged in two rounds of fire. fearing for his partner's it did, he ordered the loan front passenger tuesday and the suspect vehicle and ran to assist. not knowing what to expect when he rounded the corner, he continued toward the danger, and ultimately ended up providing cover as officers moved into reductioa safe area. the suspect had a mind set he was not going back to prison, as he was a bird strike ended it with a long

hill neighbors. i want to address the 1601 larkin fiasco. at any rate, one issue is the selective, what would we say, notices and selective participation of the small group of people -- this is something steve teuber wanted me -- he wanted to address it to you himself when you had the meeting with the city attorney. but we had been told by the commission secretary that this was not on the agenda, you know. we're having a lot of problems getting notice. it isn't that the -- that it's a plot. it isn't that we don't receive courtesy from the director who actually, if it weren't for the director a couple of times notifying me, there wouldn't be a single opponent or single paid advocate at some things like the court hearings because once you select four people, those people don't necessarily want anybody else to participate.

[ cheers ] >> a team giving up lay-up after lay-up. >> the miami hurricanes demolished the duke blue devils 0-63. -- 90-63. the 27-point drubing is the third worst beating ever for a number-one team. duke's worst loss since 1984. a lot of folks love to hate duke. >> uh-huh. >>> right now as we approach 5:00 a.m., snow all across the d.c. region. this is the view from our city camera now. >> take it easy on the roads. we're checking the camera in virginia. you'll find many main highways treated with salt. streets could be slick around your neighborhood, as well. >>> and another shot here from maryland right now. these are the conditions you'll see. you'll want to give yourself plenty of extra time if you are headed out at this early hour. >>> good morning, everyone, i'm aaron gilchrest. >> i'm eun yang. welcome to "news4 today" for this thursday, january 24, 2013. we have closings and delays starting to come into our newsroom. here's what we have so far -- the federal government is open. employees have the option for unscheduled
homage to an entire generation of players. i would disagree with that. last year barry larkin, for instance, was voted into the hall of fame. there was really no discussion about p.e.d. use. he was not connected whatsoever. and next year, i think, we go from a shutout to what's going to be, i think, a mass induction ceremony where you have people like greg maddox, frank thomas, all eligible for the first time who i believe will be first-ballot hall of famers and people like craig biggio who may get in next year. you mentioned 1996, the last time there was a shutout, there were six players on that ballot who eventually got into the hall of fame. so this is not a situation of closing the door, but saying that the voters need more time. >> what is interesting about that point if you get a good bunch in next year, tom, the baseball hall of fame is in a lot of financial trouble. eight deficits in the past ten years, the town of cooperstown is hurting because they're not getting the tourist attraction. this year is going to be a big zero with no one inducted. what's the hall of fame
, no players? no one. no one. >> look at barry larkin last year, he didn't get in on first ballot. he got in on the second ballot. clearly him and ozzie smith, the best short stops of all time, and he couldn't make it to first ballot. it is going to -- it is going to take time for the steroid era to kind of calm down, and i believe barry bonds, roger clemens, will make the hall of fame one day. >> do we know how long it has been since there have been zero inductees? i bet quite a while. >> a long time. >> what does this mean as a player? what does it mean to be inducted into the baseball hall of fame? how big a deal is this? >> it is a huge deal. this is what you play for, to put up great numbers, to be the elite of the elite. but when tit is made by writers you need great people on the field. writers, they never forget. and that's been the knock on barry bonds. that's been the knock on curt schilling. that's been the knock on roger clemens going through the whole situation. but look at their stats, roger clemens, seven-time mvp barry bonds, how do you leave them out of the hall of fame?
